Kanye West has been known to do things to the beat of his own drum, so why not his own streaming service as well. According to Complex, the rapper maybe making that huge business move soon.
It's reported that documents have surfaced of Mr. West taking steps to trademark the name "Yeezy Sound." The trademark application was filed last week and states the name would be used for the purpose of "streaming of music, audio, images, video and other multimedia content over the internet, mobile devices, wireless networks, and other computer networks and electronic communications networks."
This news comes a few months after Kanye cut ties with Jay-Z's streaming service, Tidal. We don't know much about what Yeezy Sound will offer completely, but if it's another streaming service in the likes of Tidal, things could get messier in the Jay and Ye relationship.
West was a key player in Jay-Z's Tidal and decided to leave the streaming service after accusing them of breach of contract. He reportedly said that the company owed him $3 Million.
While there is room for more streaming services, think about us common folk who don't have the coin to pay for all of them.
